Pickles In A Blanket Are Having A Moment On TikTok

There's no snack quite as unique as a pickle. A good old fashioned pickle is a low-calorie ingredient that's zesty, juicy, crunchy, and the best part? There are countless varieties of pickles to choose from. Whether you like the sweetness of bread and butter pickles, the burn of a spicy pickle, or you prefer them peeled right off of your Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich, there's no wrong way to enjoy a pickle.

Not only are pickles a versatile and funky snack, but they also boast an assortment of health benefits. According to WebMD, pickles are high in vitamins and antioxidants and can curb sugar spikes, help fight disease, and if you eat fermented cucumbers, they can even help with digestion. Long story short, eat more pickles!

Among the many ways to eat them, TikTok foodies have discovered a whole new way to enjoy pickles – pickles in a blanket. And while you might picture a platter of pigs in a blanket with a pickle in place of the sausage, pickles in a blanket are a wonder all their own.

Pickles in a blanket are made with three simple ingredients

When a TikToker decided to share their late-night guilty pleasure, they probably didn't expect to garner over one million likes, especially since they started the TikTok video by saying their husband thinks the pickle creation is gross. So what does it take to make a pickle in a blanket? Just three simple ingredients.

The hungry TikTok creator walks viewers through the pickle in a blanket process. First you add oil or cooking spray to a pan, then you melt a slice of deli-cut cheese on the pan, finally, you add a pickle spear to the melting cheese and use a spatula to roll the pickle into the cheese for a pigs in a blanket-inspired pickle delight.

Despite being an oddity, it appears fellow TikTok users were inspired. One person noted in the comments that "pickles and cheese go together like peanut butter and jelly." Another person is adding the pig back to the blanket by adding a slice of salami to his seared cheesy pickle — true culinary genius.
